could think of that is that crazy has already been actually used by these people. there are these crazy conspiracy theories about health care reform on the one hand. and on the other hand there are these organized efforts to shut down political debate about health care by using angry crowds to take over town hall meetings and chase congressmen through parking lots. these two observable facts about the antihealth care reform forces, it turns out, are really one big thing. do yourself a favor if you have a moment and you're online and go to the website recess it's a very nice website. very slick. got a big stop sign right there in the middle above the list of all the town hall rallies they expect you to go to and disrupt. the tag line up there you can see is we the people say no to socialized health care. we the people. that's how the republican party has been describing these town hall takeovers, too. putting out a statement today saying democrats should stop being so upset about them. quote, what democrats call mob rule, the average american calls democracy. these kinds of de
of a senator in new jersey. by "us," i think he was talking to the latino community. what do you make of that? >> i think anybody who is going to cast a vote for or against a nominee based on the color of their skin, that is the wrong way to be making a decision. he and the latino activists can scream all they want. the people they are appealing to and that they are going to try to rev up are not likely republican voters in the first place. i do not think this is going to make a difference. you have people like orrin hatch, who has an excellent relationship with the latino community, he cast a vote against this woman. he has one of the best outreach policies of anyone in the senate. neil: when senator barack obama voted against samuel alito for the court, i do not know if there was an outcry, "it is going to hurt him with a italian-americans." i would hope we are beyond some silliness -- hurt him with italian-americans." >> we ought to be beyond that, too. race and gender do not block people's elevation to hire op- ed's any longer in america. it just does not happen -- elevation to higher ele

to be the interesting question. the longer this program goes on, the longer people get used to being subsidized for buying a car. steve: one of the arguments in the first place to get people onboard for cash for clunkers is they said this is really going to spur people buying american cars. not so fast. it turns out four of the five top cars we told you yesterday are made by foreign brands. now, yesterday, according to data we had, the ford focus was number one. but now look at this. toyota corolla number one. ford focus number two. honda civic number three. toyota prius number four. and toyota camry number five. so essentially cash for clunkers has turned into a huge bailout for toyota. peter: and the transportation secretary yesterday in the interview gretchen conducted made it clear in response to our question. well, yeah, this is an american program. this was done to benefit american cars. gretchen: but under the auspice of the fact that a lot of those toyotas artoyotas are manufactun the u.s. but the p.r. message is not a good one. a very interesting point that i would like to make is -- y

, right? >> i am saying there is a trust gap that is growing, and as you just articulately put it for us, we are seeing promises being broken in other regards, and when it comes to my personal privacy, the privacy of my own conversation and, neil, as i might add, this is not about a suspicious suitcase being left in the middle of grand central station or some vehicle parked somewhere that looks suspicious. this is something that has something to do with the core fundamental principles of health care, and we are having our debate about that. if we are not able to have that in the privacy of our own homes and in casual conversation, this is no longer america. neil: thank you. we would read what kevin has put out, because he has framed this debate way beyond a liberal or conservative conversation. left, white, red, blue. this is just plain illegal. our senior analyst judge andrew napolitano joins us. it is illegal? >> yes. when richard nixon was worried about anti-war protesters during the vietnam era, he said fbi agents and undercover cia agents under cover, which is against the law to be
